Porsche Cayenne Design Details

With the third-gen update, Porsche has given the Cayenne a subtle makeover. This is highlighted by a refreshed front fascia with a resculpted bonnet. We also see a new look for the matrix LED headlights. Customers can get the Cayenne in 12 standard colours. We also get to choose from 24 alloy wheel options that range from 20 inches to 22 inches.

At the back, the SUVs still have a lightbar connecting the tail lamps. But now the shape of its housing and the LED elements in the tail lamps has been slightly updated. The rear of the Cayenne also has a slight nip and tuck. This is because the number plate housing has been moved from the tailgate to the bumper.
